Spring in the 50s = Silk Flowers



Even more 1950s fun. This time we show you 2 silk twill dresses in a late 50s silhouette. Very Slim, very Sleek. These two dresses were most likely one woman's. Both are dressmaker made and beautifully done, with silk linings and silk bound seams. The red poppy dress has a clever dropped hem panel with a belt, although it is made with a piped waist seam so as to look finished without. The gray and brown soft watercolor floral has a draped bodice and the same thoughtful pipe waist in case you want to go sans belt. The belt on this one is a matching covered cord with knot ends that is long enough to have fun with.
